Default Quick change router mount?

I remember seeing a round router base mount that connected to the bottom of a router and had a few companion pieces that would mount to several other router surfaces so that you just twist the router off one location and twist it on to the other location in a quick second.

I am unable to find them now.

Anyone know where they are or who makes one?

UM, yeah, not at all what I was looking for.
It's the router, the whole router is what I need to move, not change bits.

I guess I'll just have to get another router plunge base and just pull the motor out of one and slip it into the other.

Hi archangel

You'er right on, in order to do what you want, that's what you will need to do, many router Mfg.make router motors that can be switched from base to base, i.e. PC,Bosch,Craftsman for just some of them, most list them as combo sets, one plunge base and one standard hand base, but most are proprietary but not all..some just turn in and some just slip in and lock in place...

Is the TurnLock base what you mean? Lee Valley carries them, as do Rockler and Woodcraft. This is a plastic base that fits into several other bases.

Another possibility is the Veritas Router Table Insert Plate (from Lee Valley). This is a metal baseplate that is locked solidly into a router table with magnets, but can be quickly removed for hand held use.

This is what I was thinking of as well, Sears also carries these.

Again, no.


You see, I made a router table where the router mounts under the table like a standard router table and have an height adjustable plate mounted on the back of the table for horizontal routing, but the three little screws that hold the router are a pain to remove, then it,s a total pain to re-center the router and get all three to start threading in all the holes so it can be screwed down again.

It just takes too damn long to move it from one spot to the other, and to try and install it under the table is a total P.I.T.A!

I just wanted to twist the router 1/4 turn to pull it off the bottom, then twist it 1/4 turn to remount it on the back.

If I'm understanding correctly, you want to go from under table to a horz table and back?
If so, I'm not sure there is an easy way of doing this. Might be easier to have a router for each table.
I'm sure others will pop in with some answers/ideas.

ME Too

I don't get it

I must be slow

I will say the router mounting plate does not need to be sq. it can be round..

like the one in the link below.
